Meaty and scale-free, our wild sardines have a firm texture and a delicious flavor. These nutritional powerhouses are packed in organic extra virgin olive oil with a touch of sea salt. Each 3 oz serving has 18g of protein, 15% daily value of calcium, an average of 1,800mg of EPA and DHA Omega-3s and is rich in iron and potassium. Our wild sardines are an easy and tasty way to eat lower on the food chain.
